After fleeing her hometown years ago, Kara Sinclair has returned to breathe life back into the bakery her deceased grandmother left behind. She has a history in this town—one that involves her one true love. A boy she’d thought she’d give her life to before circumstance got in the way. She needs to focus on her task, but one look at Maxwell Stone and all the old feelings return. And it isn’t long before she can think of nothing else but reigniting the passion they once shared.
Max never understood what drove Kara away all those years ago, and once she returns to their Canadian hometown, he’s hell bent on getting her back into his life…and his bed. But when he uncovers the reason she left him behind, he must decide if he can move on from the past and trust his heart with the only woman he’s ever loved.
Second chance romances can be so beautiful. The way two hearts call to each other no matter how long apart they’ve been. That is the case with Kara and Max. Kara left her hometown and the love of her life when she was a teenager. His mother offered to pay her off, and told her she wasn’t worthy of her son. She also told her some other lies to push her way and make the decision for her.
Kara comes back a year after her grandmother dies to reopen the family bakery. The first person who stops in to see her is Max. They start off right where they stopped.
I really liked this story. The only problem I had was I thought the ending could’ve been longer. I wanted to see them work through their issues and hear about their HEA. Other than that, this is a really good short read. I can’t wait to read more from Ms. Rider.
